Throwing breaker when plugged up to AC

Gas works fine, When I plug power cord into the garage to get ref. cooling before a camping trip the GFI in the garage threw its breaker. I feel that the Power module may be bad. Fuses all look go though.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Never remove a GFI. It is there for a reason. If your plug is has a bad GFI, you can replace the plug with a standard one but make sure you replace where it plugs into with a GFI receptacle which only cost about 30 bucks, or you could replace the breaker that feeds that circuit with a GFI breaker. The problem with replacing the breaker is that if you place any resistance head loads on it (i.e. blow dryer, toaster), it might trip because you get a loss of current from resistance heat. The GFI only looks at what is going in and what is going out. If it sees an imbalance of up to 20 milli amps, it will trip. Your cheapest way is replace with a standard plug and add a GFI plug receptacle to where it plugs into.

If by "trips the breaker" you mean the GFI then you are leaking current to ground, GFI's trip when there is an imbalance between the current going to the motor on the HOT side and returning from the motor on the NEUTRAL side, if it is tripping the GFI it is likely the sign of a failing motor.

I have a question on Coleman AC


First of all, an extension cord and GFI receptacle to run an AC unit will almost always blow either GFI or circuit breaker or both due to large current draw from AC unit. If an extension cord needs to be used, keep it as short as possible, and use the heavier gauge that is approved for AC use. What happens when you use an extension cord, is the voltage drop that will happen by the time the AC gets power. With any voltage drop, the amperage draw increases, so a 15 amp circuit breaker will most likely trip. Nowadays, all AC units are wired with a minimum 12 gauge wire rated for 20 amps.
You say nothing is happening now, is that to say that the fan only mode doesn't work on the AC unit either?

TRIPS BREAKER , IS ONLY PULLING 3.9 AMP. WHAT IS THE AMP RATING ON THE BREAKER


If you are plugging it in a normal garage or outside plug then they are 15 amp GFI. Try running a cord to a Kitchen or bath plug and see if they work. They are 20 amp.

Maybe over pulling more amps the the GFCI curcuit can handle. Check all the GFCI plug and verify if there are anything else plugged in. Including hair dryers and / or flat irons.

GFI outlet is tripping because of refrigerator in the garage.


Hi: Yes, replace the GFI outlet. A refrigerator should not be plugged into one for what you are experiencing and food loss. This was an easy answer for me, but unfortunately not for you The owners manual covers this, but us men don't read them (Well I had to as I worked with them for 30 years). Good luck, Jeff

GFI on cord trips out.


Probable cause is a single pole gfi opposed to a double pole gfi.
* Do not use a single pole GFCI ON A MULTI WIRE CIRCUIT, IT WILL NUISANCE TRIP IMMEDIATELY
Use a two pole GFCI circuit breaker on such circuits.

Everytime I plug in the power cord, it trips the breaker.


Refrigerators are not designed to run on a GFCI. Try a heavy duty extension cord to the fridge from a outlet that is not GFCI protected. If it still trips you probably have a short circuit in the compressor.

Of course it can be plugged into a GFI outlet. Sounds like you have a compressor problem.
